and where does the exhaust go?

Very cool looking bike and can't beat the HP/lbs ratio... But please keep it at home in the rain There is no tread on that front tire at all.

I think i still like the traditional sport bikes better.

The exhaust is all hidden...the graphics on the wheels are the Aprilia Lion, they're wheels that are off of the VDB edition.

I do race supermoto. I race in the intermediate and expert class. I do a lot of racing on the southwest (nevada, AZ and CA).

I sold all my sportbikes and I don't regret it. Its the most fun i've had on a motorcycle.

As a supermoto rider myself, I hate you.


Out of pure envy, of course.

Once I saw the rebuild intervals on those, I knew that it was out of the question as a streetbike, but as a track weapon it would rock. Plenty of tighter tracks in Japan where this thing could eat. Tsukuba, Ebisu, etc.

Also, I came from the sportbike world. Supermoto bikes are the go-karts of the bike world. Just like in a go-kart, you can't stop grinning like an idiot while on it and you always beat the hell out of it whenever you ride.

On a true supermoto track you'll ride foot out style. If you're running on a big track, like a small road course then you'll more then likely ride road race style.


I ride foot out all the time, even when on a road course.
